Why is Hannemann sitting in Mesa? Get him to Iowa or release him Theo.

he's such a good pure athlete who's bat never caught up with his good speed and great D (all 3 OF slots).

shame he doesn't at least have a bit of power...he would be someone's 4th/5th OF'r.

Sounds like a poor man's Corey Patterson.

    Good deal - much better ballpark experience than at the Ted. Atlanta fans are buying in and showing up.

    It’s a shame that they had to burn Cishek with a five run lead. I guess they could have used Brach or Caratini. Probably not enough time to warm up Caratini. Wouldn’t want to risk blowing the lead with Brach.

    gonna be in ATL over the 4th and catching the young braves club in person.  i really don't like going to that park (hey, who wants 3-4 hours of the "tommy hawk chawp"?), but i wanna see this collection of kids.

    Kyle Ryan playing like a man who wants to keep his big league roster spot - well done!!

    if javy has the ball you gotta play like you're on a basketball court.  until the play is dead, no matter what your view is, that ball could be coming at you at any time from any angle.

    bote also goofed earlier in the season playing 3rd during a lester start by not knowing how extreme one needs to cover for him.  yeah, technically it should be lester's play, but realistically the 3rd baseman has more range to cover with lester on the mound.

    Barnette’s 88-91 mph fastball really is, uh, not very special.

    But for Flowers and the pitchers spot, the Braves lineup is relentless. When McCann plays, the only hole is the pitchers spot. Tough club.

    welcome to the cubs barnette.

    6 pitches to his 1st batter, solo HR.

    you're gonna fit in just fine.

    Thanks Phil. What kind of prospect(s) do you think it would take to pick up Melky?

     

  • Eric S 16 hours 15 min ago (view)

    Not the first time Bote has frozen on a catchable ball from Javy at second ... and leads to two unearned runs. Damn. Love Bote, but when you’re playing with Javy, you better expect the unexpected 

     

  • crunch 16 hours 35 min ago (view)

    mission accomplished.

    also, wow at that 10 mile long leash teheran got to totally suck.

    Pro tip to the Cubs: score a ton of runs, then score a ton more. These Braves specialize in pulverizing and bludgeoning teams into oblivion, particularly after the six inning.

    Walnuts suck. Just sayin’

    The Cubs have officially signed three more 2019 draft picks: RHP Zach Bryant (15th round - Jacksonville), RHP Johzan Oquendo (16th round - Leadership Christian Academy - Guaynabo, PR), and RHP Shane Combs (31st round - Notre Dame). 

    So the Cubs have now signed 24 of their 40 draft picks.
